Quit Poken Me. Or Don't, Actually...

Sometimes, it can be a little difficult to remember someone's email, blog address, FB page, Twitter ID, etc, etc. You've got to write it down, then hopefully remember where you stashed that piece of paper. Same thing goes for exchanging business cards. Ever accidentally run an important card through the wash because you left it in a pocket?

Not any more. Now there's Poken. What's a Poken? According to the website, it's this:

Poken solves one simple problem: how do I remember the email addresses and screen names of everyone I meet? You Poken, of course. When you meet other Poken owners in the real world, quickly swap information. No more writing down email addresses or long blog names. Just touch Pokens and connect.

Poken holds your contact information: name, address, email, mobile phone, and the rest, and it also holds your social networking account names. Poken contains your FaceBook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn and other accounts.

Already know all your friends' profiles? Even better. When you Poken and they Poken, you'll automatically have updates when they open a new social networking account.

So what do you think? Would you Poken? Or do you think it's just a fad? Personally, I'd love to try one out.

  5. Like the concept. Hate the Pokemon. Looks very childish. Doesn't iPhone do this when you tap two together?

  6. hmm... not sure how I feel about this. Most people have their contact info easily accessable, so I've never run into this problem.

    I would like an Iphone though.

    I'm still kinda confused as to what it actually does, but hey, I'm willing to be convinced.

  10. WANT!! Think about going to a conference and being able to tap a little usb dealio and walk away with everything you need. Done.

    I am anti-I-nation, so I'll never own an Iphone. Don't like em. I find most of the apps silly. But this just makes SENSE to me. Like having my usb that stores all my written work. I love that.
